Cat and Girl and the Vandervoorts

  • 23rd Sep, 2005 at 12:18 PM

Almost everybody I know reads web-comics. I mean, there are so many of them that you're bound to bump into something that you like. I happened to have a folder of bookmarks in Firefox that I open up every day.

Which is why, today, as I was going through my daily rounds, I noticed Out of Vogue. Since I have been exploring my musical tastes, I found it absolutely amazing. So amazing that I compel you to read it.

Wasn't that great?

Interestingly enough, Dorothy Gambrell also plays in a band called the Vandervoorts, which bills itself as the "last uncool band in Brooklyn". Listening to the songs they've put on-line, I can only say that I have no idea whether I like their sound.

I mean, their music sounds very much like garage punk. They describe themselves as "four people without music training or properly tussled bedheads. We like to shout and scream and occasionally execute tiny little dance moves. We have written four (4) songs about public transportation, one (1) song about Dwight D. Eisenhower, and we're working on one about a trained seal named Gowanda."

Punk songs about public transportation?!? Yet, I find their lyrics are strangely, surreally compelling.

Is there something wrong with me?

the Vandervoorts
I love the Vandervoorts, just as much as I love Cat and Girl. I wish I could hear them live or get a cd or something, but I live in Can-ah-duh and have no money with which to venture to New York...or really anywhere outside of my province.
